    Default Replacing characters at a certain index

    I can't seem to find the method that will let me replace a character at a certain index in a string to another character.

    For example, I have a string that is just ten a's, "aaaaaaaaaa"
    And at the 6th spot I want to replace the a with a b. How would I do that?

    Copy your original String to a StringBuilder (or StringBuffer) and do the replacements in that object. When finished have that object create a new String. Or, you can make your String create a char array, do your work in there and create a new String given the modified char array. Read the details of this all in the API documentation for those classes.

    kind regards,
